> IntervalScorer currently uses the same scoring mechanism as SpanScorer, summing the IDF
of all possibly matching terms from its parent IntervalsSource and using that in conjunction
with a sloppy frequency to produce a similarity-based score.  This doesn't really make sense,
however, as it means that terms that don't appear in a document can still contribute to the
score, and appears to make scores from interval queries comparable with scores from term or
phrase queries when they really aren't.
> I'd like to explore a different scoring mechanism for intervals, based purely on sloppy
frequency and ignoring term weighting.  This should make the scores easier to reason about,
as well as making them useful for things like proximity boosting on boolean queries.
